Join us on our exciting Slow Food Chinatown Tour, at the time of Chinese New Year of the Rat. Explore the history, culture, and food traditions of Honolulu's Chinatown. Shop its markets to learn about seafood, fresh produce, and traditional foods. Visit bakeries, noodle factories, specialty shops, temples and historic sites. Sample local foods such as poke, roast pork, look funn noodles, and tropical fruits. Bring your shopping bags with you so you can buy fresh produce, noodles, manapua, and specialty products.
Following the 2-hour walking tour we will enjoy lunch together at one of Chinatown's finest restaurants. The 5-course family-style Chinese menu will include traditional Chinese New Year dishes such as dumplings, noodles, and steamed fish. Meal cost is included in the tour price. Please alert us in advance of any food restrictions.
Meeting location and parking suggestions will be emailed to ticket-holders 48 hours before the tour.
Please note: We keep this tour size limited to 8 to insure an intimate experience and avoid blocking already crowded sidewalks and markets, and we also need to set a minimum of 5 participants for this event in order to assure that our volunteer tour leaders' efforts are used to good advantage. If we don't fill the minimum, we will offer full refunds and alert ticket holders to other upcoming tours. Thanks for your understanding.
Also consider arranging a private tour for your family or group at a time that fits your schedule!
